I got mine around that same time. I made the vendor go through about 5 or 6 of them before I found one in good shape (Then he proceeded to crease it while rolling it). Was lucky to find another one in good shape farther down the stack. They were terrible at handling the prints last night.

at Great Woods they let you roll your own print and put it in the tube....did they sell these outside of the venue too?

I didn't leave him an option as I quickly took the print, rolled it myself and put it in the tube. The tubes are actually great though as they withstood my night of dancing on the lawn.

Thats what I did with the second one. He asked me if I wanted him to roll it again. Told him to put it down, take the money and back away. Agreed on the tubes, was back and forth between the seats and the lawn and it held up perfect.

I, for one, really like the poster. Thanks, Justin!

I can take some, but they would be camera phone pics, so not the best quality. I'm also not exactly sure how to upload pics to the site.

I missed out at the show due to an issue a friend had before the show. Now I am stuck paying too much off of ebay.

Yeah this print is great. Definitely my favorite of the tour.

I was a little late getting to the show (went in about 1/2 an hour after doors opened), so I hastily made my way to the merchandise stand. I asked the person working behind the counter if they had any posters left; she looked at me like I was crazy, and pulled out an enormous stack of them. Very different from the Fenway scene.

I picked one up and was on the way to the lawn for what turned out to be an outstanding show.

On mine....whoever numbered them, penciled the numbers right under the Bridge - right in the center of the art!

I love the fact that the print is signed and numbered (UNLIKE GREAT WOODS), but why dose it have to be in the middle of the design? What's wrong with the edge of the poster like normal. A little disappointed about that, it's sort of distracting.

Thoughts?

Because "normal" shows respect to the design and composition, by not conspicuously writing on it and detracting attention away form the art. Amazing work Justin, truly one of the best of the tour - but with all due respect I wish it wasn't written on - and could have easily of been numbered on the edge of the print.

Love the print, particularly capturing the full moon of the night (thanks Justin!) but so confused by the numbering too but not so much of where it is but why it is that I have a numbered print without a signature. I've looked everywhere on the print trying to find a signature but there isn't one. I bought it right at the show and rolled it myself but never thought to look for it. Came to EB to see if they were supposed to have signatures and now seeing that others have them. Does anyone not have a signature on theirs?

Question about the position of the print and only asking as I'm wondering if this is why I don't have a signed one, my print goes practically to the very bottom of the paper with a little less than a centimeter of blank white paper, is this how everyone's is? Just curious, would have loved to have a signature though now that I see others do. Thanks!

The sig is on the bottom center of the print. It's really hard to see, but its there.

Exactly why I put the number where it is....I wonder if doing things normal is as good? Im not normal. :D
